Book 'em Kammo

The 19th century science of dactyloscopy took a big leap into the 21st century this month for the Hillsborough Township Police Department. One hundred seventeen years after a bloody fingerprint sealed the fate of an Argentinian woman who murdered her two small children - the first such use of fingerprint identification - Hillsborough is throwing away its paper and ink and going high-tech.

A $25,000 live-scan fingerprint system has been installed at the municipal complex, improving the speed and accuracy of positively identifying individuals in custody.

Let's face it, with nearly 7 billion of us running around the planet, it can be pretty tough to sort us all out. I'm for anything that helps us round up the perps. Book'em Kammo!
